September Wrap-Up: A change of pace

I posted my August wrap-up two weeks ago. Surprise! While I was still reeling, the month ended! The rest of September was taken up with rereads, some health stuff, and decisions about the future. As requested [by Meghan], here is a picture my completely healed Piranesi tattoo. Do I have another tattoo planned? Not officially,… Continue reading September Wrap-Up: A change of pace

The Ice Lolly Book Tag

I survived a two-week heat wave. I'm now ready for fall. I found the Ice Lolly Book Tag (created by Louise @ Book Murmuration) over at AceReader. I had to google each of the sweets mentioned but they look and sound delicious. King cones with the chocolate bit at the end are still my favorite.… Continue reading The Ice Lolly Book Tag

July Wrap-Up: Using ice on my vagus nerve 24/7

Well. It's been a couple of weeks, that's for sure. I have been trying to ward off full-on panic for about a month with mixed success. As I mentioned in my last post, my brain is soup. One good thing happened last month: my niece Josie was born. She and my sister-in-law are doing great… Continue reading July Wrap-Up: Using ice on my vagus nerve 24/7

Dream Daddy Book Tag [ORIGINAL]

Fuck it. Times have been hard. Here's a book tag. Since finishing school, I've been playing a buttload of video games, including queer mainstay Dream Daddy: A Dad Dating Simulator. A good alternate title might be Subverting Stereotypes: The Game. I should do a Dad ranking one of these days because two of these daddies… Continue reading Dream Daddy Book Tag [ORIGINAL]

Mid-Year Freak Out 2022

I made it to June, by golly. I've read 111 books thus far, 55.5% of my 200 book goal. Here are my reading highs and lows from the last six months. Best book read so far I'm on my third reread of Good Omens this year. I find it really touching. I also REALLY love… Continue reading Mid-Year Freak Out 2022

June Wrap-Up: I hate it here

I could start things off on a positive note, I suppose: I finished school. I now have a Certificate in Editing from the University of Washington. After a year and a half of cramming assignments after work, I am finally free. Now for the rest of the month: NOT GREAT. The previous month's news became… Continue reading June Wrap-Up: I hate it here

Dessertathon: Sugar acquired

After a busy couple of weeks, I finished one of the books on my Dessertathon TBR! One down, six to go! For the Sugar prompt (feel-good book), I reread Casey McQuiston's One Last Stop for the umpteenth time. I love this book so much. Casey McQuiston's prose always gets me. I love the historical tidbits… Continue reading Dessertathon: Sugar acquired

Welp. I've done it. I joined a readathon. The Dessertathon Readathon takes place over the month of June.

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Comfort Reads

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic: COMFORT READS. My comfort reads confirm what I already believe: things ARE as bad as they seem. Strangely, I find these books uplifting. I like knowing I'm not alone. These are my top ten comfort reads. I wouldn't call any of them "lighthearted." (Well...maybe One Last Stop.) Would You Rather?… Continue reading TOP TEN TUESDAY: Comfort Reads

The Recommendations Book Tag

Hello! I have a new book tag! Riddhi at Whispering Stories tagged me in this! (View the original post at Ally Writes Things.) I came up for a bunch of answers for each prompts but limited myself to one each. IT WAS A TRIAL. A book about friendship Frog and Toad are Friends is a… Continue reading The Recommendations Book Tag
